really liked it
bookshelves: memoir, politics, feminism

Oh, I did like this. Yes indeed. I laughed out loud more than once. Tina Fey describes her early life, her work on Saturday Night Live, the whole Sarah Palin thing, and work on 30 Rock with a skewering wit and humor. What I most appreciated about the book, though, is that *this* is what feminism looks like, to me. It looks like women recognizing the tremendous obstacles arrayed against them, putting their heads down, and getting the work done. Fey, Poehler, and the other women mentioned in the book all contribute to making the world wider for the women who follow them. That's feminism, that's humanism, that's simple freaking PROGRESS. It's all of our jobs collectively to make things easier for the people who come after us. Bossypants is a memoir of that work.
